Deep down in Louisiana, out in New Orleans. Way back up in the woods amongst the evergreens, there stood a log cabin made of earth and wood where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode who never ever learned to read or write so well, but he could play the guitar just like a ringing a bell.

Go, Go
Go Johnny, Go, Go
Go Johnny Go, Go
Go Johnny Go, Go
Go Johnny Go, Go, Go
Johnny B. Goode

He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack. Go sit beneath the tree by the railroad track. Oh, the engineers would see him sitting in the shade strumming with the rhythm that the drivers made. People passing by, they would stop and say "Oh my, how that little country boy could play".

His mother told him "Someday you will be a man, and you will be the leader of a punk rock band. Many people coming from miles around to hear you play your music when the sun go down. Maybe someday your name will be in lights? Saying Johnny B. Goode tonight".
